Review : FiiO K3 – Legacy

By | December 20th, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , |

The FiiO K3 desktop amp is the successor of the little FiiO E10K. In this article we look at the newest FiiO USB DAC

Disclaimer: The Fiio K3 was sent to us for the purpose of this review. The unit doesn’t need to be returned and Fiio is a site advertiser.

Four years in the making, that’s basically how long FiiO took to upgrade its desktop USB-DAC series. Sometimes it looks like the brand releases a DAP every quarter – FiiO M7 in May – FiiO M9 in september, FiiO M6 in December – and the product life of their DACs seems to be much longer.… Read the full article

Picture Sunday – iFi Audio Micro/Nano Black Label

By | November 24th, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Ifi Audio is a special brand for me. Back in the days, I had the chance to make a trip to Hong-Kong for a business trip. The first day I went for the HKTDC, one of the biggest tech fairs, and the first stand I saw was… iFi Audio ! They were displaying the first generation of iCan and a set of products from AMR, the big venture at the origin of iFi Audio.

Picture Sunday – Sennheiser HD820 : under the dome

By | November 17th, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , |

Today we take a good look at the Sennheiser HD820, the new German flagship.

Sennheiser HD800 – The reference

The Sennheiser HD800 and the latter HD800S are the top models from the German brand, if you don’t take in to account the Sennheiser Orpheus. Wide sound stage, good comfort, great build and amazing sound once properly driven, that made this headphone a best-seller. The only drawback ? The (very) open design, which forces you to use it in a very silent room.… Read the full article

Picture Sunday – Sennheiser HD598 – For the love of wood

By | September 22nd, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , |

Today we look at the good old Sennheiser HD598, a good and affordable headphone loved by many of you.

The Sennheiser HD598 was an odd headphone but it’s still one my favourite. It’s lightweight, comfy, open-back and was supposed to be a cheaper alternative of the HD6XX series (no, not the Massdrop ones).

Today, this headphone isn’t sold by Sennheiser anymore, since they replaced it by the HD599. But, somehow I achieved to find one, brand new and sealed… so I just bought it.… Read the full article
